Oh no, I'm not trying to lose too many pounds nor am I aiming for the perfect bikini body. What I want is to at least shed a few so I would fit into my old clothes again. I gained so much during the past months after I quit smoking. My doc says it's natural and it might take a few more months to have the thyroid working again. I still continue to workout though I have to admit it gets frustrating sometimes. I work so hard but the weight won't even budge. I asked him if I could take usp labs oxyelite pro, a fat incinerating formula especially made for women who have slow metabolism (that's me!). He said, he'll check on it and will let me now ASAP.
